said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that

obama is ahead by 50 points among latinos, but their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. that was another aspect of last night. >> glen, my thinking had been, while it was mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was like a three- or four- cushion shot in pool. is ohio what we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a really good question, charlie, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. there is the reason no republican has won the presidency without winning ohio. is even more true. i entered this election cycle believing that there were three key states instead of just florida and ohio. i added a virginia to that list. if they are at the top, the next half level down his north carolina. -- is north carolina. look, clearly, governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia to build a very competitive state race now. ohio is a place where he does need a significant comeback. well taken,s are that for many voters, the election started last night. if he is going to

of figures suggest, in 1996, u t austin continued to use race in admissions and had a black and latino representation along the line of 18% combined. in the next year, 1997, university of texas was banned from using race by a lower court decision. they saw a decline in racial and ethnic diversity using socio-economic status alone in their admissions process. but by 2004, using socio- economic considerations in admissions and what is known as the top 10% plan, where students to graduate in the top 10% of their high school is automatically admitted, you see racial and ethnic diversity, black and latino representation actually increases above what texas had achieved in 1996. now, we are very clear in the report that part of the reason that there are greater levels of racial and ethnic diversity into a dozen for is that the latino population growth in texas during that time period. as a policy matter, i think it is fair to say that texas ought to be pursuing other race- neutral methods of increasing racial and ethnic diversity so that it more closely mirrors the state's population. as a le

the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was a cushion shot in pool. is ohio but we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. is a reason -- i entered this election cycle believing that their word out three key states instead of dust florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list, and then if they are at the top, the next half-level down is where carolina. look, clearly governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. ohio is a place where he doesn't need a significant comeback, and i think fred's points are well taken, which is for a lot of voters the election start

of latinos, native, my mom, myself, we are african-american. we unloaded -- we have noticed certain lines that have been drawn. i mean this with the utmost respect to both parties, certain people campaign in certain communities. for 100 going to be percent sign of americans, shouldn't certain candidates go to all -- for 100% of have -- one under% of americans. some people take for granted that because myself and my wife are african-american, we're going to vote for barack obama. i would like to hear the other side of the argument in my community. some of the members of my community, we rarely see elected officials or people running for office. >> he is exactly right. we need to be campaigning across the country and i think republican candidates are doing that across the country. we feel very good about where our targeted feet are. there is no doubt the republican party in 2006 and 2008 shrank back to a smaller version of itself. but we showed we could win seats across the country from the northeast to the midwest. for the first time, we will have competitive seats in california. californi

is on record saying if he remains in the united states senate, he will vote against it again. the latino families in the state and in this country deserve to have that dream act passed, deserve comprehensive immigration reform. you crack down on employers that are knowingly hiring undocumented workers, you secure your borders, and you give people an opportunity to get to the back of a line and have some legal status when they get to the front. the arizona law is a terrible discriminatory law. my opponent wants to bring it to nevada. >> let me talk to you about 20% we disagree. she supports blanket amnesty at the end of the day. if you put a blanket amnesty on the floor of the house of representatives, she would support it. let's step back. people come into my office. hispanics are concerned about the dream act. they are also concerned about their families, jobs, the education for their kids, for businesses, and these are the issues we have to solve. their unemployment is higher thanks to my opponent than the general population. we have to put together jobs programs that work. every time
